How to Use
Rated 3.8 out of 5 stars
I was really excited to try this. I love face serums and loved that this could be a primer as well. It also had tons of good ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, goji berry, acai, etc. so it hydrates plus giving your skin all sorts of good antioxidants. It absorbs quickly and leaves behind smooth skin. It isn't sticky or tacky, which I sometimes get with other serums. The serum does have a scent, which is stronger than some other serums I have at home, so those who are sensitive to scents might not like this product. When I received it, I loved that the bottle was plastic because I'm really clumsy and I'm prone to drop (and break) things XD There's a slight shimmer to the serum that blends out to invisible when you apply it. I use this serum daily not just as a face serum to give my skin a boost in hydration, but under my makeup as a primer and also on days where I go 100% makeup-free. This gives my skin a gorgeous glow and a smooth appearance. I absolutely love this and the price is even more amazing. I will definitely be keeping a bottle of this constantly stocked!!
I am upset I was fooled by the good reviews. Nothing about this primer was good. The dropper could hardly pick up any product. I had to hold it in & slowly release the button after 30 tries it finally picked up product. It smells like granny perfume so pungent even after time passes. I usually never mind fragrance but the high alcohol content and perfume became a big issue. My face shriveled up so tight and dry when I put makeup over it and I waited a long time in between. I had to wipe off everything and moisturize so much to bring my skin back to comfort. It made my makeup look disgusting, and basically felt like an alcohol solution that dried my skin up. I had a feeling it wasn't going to be nourishing based on the smell and I was right.

I was excited for this. I purchased it thinking it was a dupe for Laniege Glowy serum. Nope! It did nothing. No glow no nothing. AND the dropper didnt work! Back to the store its going. I just get the Laniege.

When I first bought this product it was on sale. I have super oily skin so when I ordered it I was hoping I didn't have to return it like all the other face serum I have used. But to my surprise it works well with my skin type. I went back in the store and bought a second one full price. Every time I put this on I get so many compliments. My skin with foundation looks like I'm glowing. So glad I found a product that I love. If you are thinking about buying it just get it. Life is too short to second guess. Oh but the one thing they need to fix is the applicator, it doesn't really grab much product and it's really flimsy. I don't mind it much I just take off the dropper and put it on my beauty blender.

So far I love it. I am only 5 days in on it and I can already tell a difference. I was reluctant because the price was cheap for this but it is showing great results for me.
I have paired it with a moisturizer and they are working great.

I'm not crazy about the scent

The dropper is useless. It's a gross gel that does nothing for your face and doesn't absorb into skin. Whoever tested this product really messed up.
Heather Feather from Marion NC
I use this with my daily routine. I work in biomedical medicine so we aren't allowed to wear makeup to work. This gives my skin a glow when I can't wear makeup or don'tt feel like it. However, when I am wearing makeup, I skip this. It doesn't do well under foundation

Tried it for the first time and made my face burn and hours later, my fave started to feel supper dry

Dropper doesn't pull much product. Takes quite a bit to cover face, absorbs/dries quickly. Smells nice but smells fades quickly. I have a very oily t-zone which this stuff is no match for.
CottonAngel from Raleigh
Just came back to order more - definitely has a floral scent but I like it. My face feels very soft and makeup applies smoothly. Dropper is a bit weird but if you follow the included directions (pull out and depress dropper, put back into serum, then release dropper and remove from serum) it works just fine.
Sam from Huntsville, AL
Just no. High expectations, no results. I saw no difference in my skin and it has a weird smell. Not a glow. Not even shimmer. No extra moisture. Nothing.
Stephanie from Alabama
This feels so good on my skin, and the smell doesn't bother me. In fact, I would have given it 5 stars if the dropper wasn't completely useless.

I put it on after my moisturizer but before my mako
Kissy from North Carolina
This dropper is pretty much useless and barely collects any product
Mel B from IN
I have older skin with fine lines. Without this primer my foundation looks dry and all my lines really stand out. This primer really hydrates my skin and allows the foundation to glide on smoothly. It really diminishes my lines!

I use this daily after my moisturizer has settled in. Works well as a primer or mixed with foundation to add some moisturizing. It applies a bit sticky, which is a bit expected as it helps foundation last longer.

Didn't make my face feel dry
Buzzard from California
Discovered this product and haven't looked back, so believe this is bottle 4 love love it.
Tonya from Roswell, NM
The smell is disgusting, unless you like that fake rose smell. And you can smell it all day. There is no glow either. Waste of money. It's getting tossed. Such a shame.

It's just ok. The pump doesn't work. Not worth full price but for the great reduced price, I'll use it. Live and learn. Not a repurchase for me.
MrsH_11 from Texas
The packaging is decent, but the pump doesn't work. The product itself is okay. I was using the Elf glow primer which is $10 less and I feel that gave better glow than this product. I'm going to finish it, but this will not be a repurchase.
Lovely from NC
This is just okay. It's not a bad primer. I don't see the glow at all. It's does it's basic job. The dispenser is AWFUL! I take the lid off and just pour it on my hand at this point. I would not buy this at full price or recommend that anyone else does. I bought it on sale during 21 days of beauty and if you plan to buy this then do the same.
jenny from San Jose, CA
The smell is overwhelming and it resembles something you would buy for a 5 year old in a fake makeup set. Complete waste of money, I wish I could return it!
Em from Hayden Idaho
This product is so wonderful for just that dewy fresh look, smells amazing and just overall is the best primer out there, try it! You won't regret it!
